Parents and community members please continue to send in questions or concerns you may have regarding the Coronavirus COVID-19 so that those topics can be addressed in our daily presentation updates on our website.

Please email questions to WebbK@hcboe.net and place "School/Virus Questions" in the subject line

 Please contact us at 423-586-7700 if you do not possess the ability to view the video, and we will ensure you get the information.  Thanks in advance for your support and understanding.


The following summary will provide an open and transparent review of the positive cases of COVID-19 which are reported in the district.  This summary will be updated daily around 3:30 p.m.  It is important to note the following:


1.  Only confirmed cases of COVID-19 will be reported.  We are inundated with rumors and speculations that individuals have tested positive.  We will only            report those we can confirm. 

2.  We will only report cases of staff members and students enrolled in Hamblen County Schools.  We will not report cases of family members of either staff         or students who have tested positive.   

3.  We are required by law to protect the identity of any person testing positive.  We will not release the name of any student or staff member who tests                  positive.

4.  We will list the school and the grade level for each conformed case.  This will provide parents with a general summary of the infection.  We will also send          home some type of electronic message notifying parents we have experienced some type of exposure within the school.  This school message will not              specifically mean your child was exposed.  We will communicate directly with you if we believe your child was exposed.  

5.  Someone from the school or the health department will contact you if your child may have been exposed and you need to remove your child from school.         There is no need to quarantine your child unless you are contacted specifically.

6.  This count will start on the first day of school which was September 8, 2020.

Abbreviated Elementary Basketball Season.

Practice is already underway for elementary basketball with each school playing schools within their category twice. There will not be a tournament. Each student will be allocated up to two tickets to purchase for admission. Cheerleaders will cheer at home games but will not travel to away games. Five quarters will be played so that more students have an opportunity to play.
